The Academy of the Immaculate, founded in 1992, is inspired by and based on project of St. Maximilian M. Kolbe (never realized by the Saint because of his death by martyrdom at the age of 47, August 14, 1941). Among its goals, the Academy seeks to promote at every level the study of the mystery of the Immaculate Conception and the universal maternal mediation of the Virgin Mother of God; and to sponsor publication and dissemination of the fruits of this research in every way possible
